We have another great week of shows this week at Bluelight!!!
Our 2014 Bluelight Fall Singer/Songwriter competition is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still come see some of the most talented songwriters in the region congregating every Monday for our songwriter nights. All original songs sung by the artists that created them. Cheapest drinks in town as well.
Taking cues from the music he was raised on Erick is blending soulful melodic lyrics, with the deep groove of roots-rock and as his lyric says, “with some of the harder stuff.” Showcasing a smooth voice with an excellent upper register, uniquely gravely at times, and always pleasant to the ear, Erick is bringing lots of soul to the mix, along with undeniably Texas inspired lyrics.
This fall, Rich O’Toole will embark on a US tour and release the official music video for “Jaded,” directed by Oden Roberts, whose movie, A Fighting Season, comes out next year. The video was shot in Joshua Tree and Pioneertown, California and simply yet beautifully illustrates the story that Rich and Evan penned.
Stepping on to the Texas music scene with the debut album, “A Little More Time”, the Oklahoma born and Texas raised Brett Hauser has been working hard to cut his teeth in an industry that tends to chew up most. Stubborn resilience has carried this songwriter to some of the major venues of the Texas Music Scene. His lyrical imagery brings the listener truths discovered through his own experiences and observations of life which we can all relate to.
In 2012 Baird followed up Blue Eyed Angels with I Swear It’s The Truth, named one of the top twenty albums of the year by Spin Magazine. This effort showcased his influences, including Tom Petty, Chris Knight, and Robert Earl Keen. I Swear It’s The Truth featured the hit single, “Dreams and Gasoline” which was added to XM’s “The Highway” and was featured in the ABC drama, Nashville (2012 TV series). The video for the single was shot in Joshua Tree, CA and was supported by CMT and their multiple platforms.
Red is in town. Party
